I found this video of a Detroit house fire at Mound and Davison very interesting. It was uploaded by iTVDetroit / Aerial Photo & HD Video. Shooting fires does not seem to be the firm’s normal line of work but getting video from above is. From the company’s YouTube page:
We fly radio controlled vehicles to lift camera gear. Full sized aircraft can’t fly under 1000 ft , so RC is a great solution.
Sure is a lot cheaper than a news helicopter. Could you see someone using this to get around barricades where police, fire or EMS is trying to keep the news media or anyone with cameras from seeing things or shooting a scene?
